Grammarly: Writing App 4+
Great writing, simplified
- Offers In-App Purchases
Grammarly for Safari offers real-time suggestions to help you write your best online, no matter what you’re working on in your browser.
With comprehensive feedback on spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity, and writing style, Grammarly is more than just a proofreader. It’s a tool that helps you write with confidence, find the best words to express yourself, and communicate your ideas with ease.
► How it works
Grammarly analyzes your sentences as you write and adds color-coded underlines to words and phrases where you can improve your writing. You can apply Grammarly’s suggestion with a single click, or expand the suggestion to learn more about it.
► Go beyond grammar
Grammarly’s advanced spelling checker and grammar checker go far beyond the built-in tools of word processors. Grammarly can detect not only misspellings, but also commonly confused words used in the wrong context, like “affect” and “effect.” In addition, it can flag and fix complex grammar and punctuation issues like sentence fragments, comma splices, and subject-verb disagreement.
But great writing is about much more than just grammar and spelling. That’s why Grammarly also helps you streamline wordy phrases and rewrite sentences that are likely to confuse readers. It also suggests word choice improvements to help keep readers engaged, and helps you adjust your tone to ensure you come across the way you intend.
For students: Now available on the extension, our free beta auto-citations feature generates citations for online sources in seconds, without you having to enter any info manually or leave the web page. Get pre-formatted citations ready to go, whether you use APA, MLA, or Chicago.

Ratings and Reviews
So far, give and take on usefulness
Technically, it seems to work well enough, but it does not get along well with Open Office. That might be a Java issue? Devs should look into that.
I rated it a 3 because of the crash-lockup issue with Open Office. Otherwise, I would have rated it a 4.
As for grammar and such, it does well, but Grammarly has a style that it wants to enforce all the time everywhere. It does not seem to be able to discern quick notes from lengthier writings.
In particular, it is somewhat helpful in legal writing, but it has an issue with articles (it wants articles all the time, in every situation). All in all, it is helpful, but not astounding.
It does help with pointing out words that don't need to be there. I will keep using it, but, unfortunately, I've not seen enough "wow" to entice me to pay for it.
I should qualify all of the above with this caveat: Grammarly says I write better than 97% of whoever it is comparing me to, so it may not be doing as much for me as it could for another writer.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for sharing your experience with us! Unfortunately, Grammarly doesn't support integration with OpenOffice at this time, but thank you for letting us know that it’s something you’d like to see. We’ve forwarded your request to our product team so that they can take it into account when making development plans. As for the grammar issues that you mentioned, could you please send us a screenshot of an example via https://gram.ly/3j7Ylsq? We're happy to look into these!
The new feedback window is terrible
The new feedback window is terrible. I don't know who thinks of this, but extremely annoying. It is never helping, extremely slow, you don't know what's wrong with your text, it's just terrible. The previous version was to give a very fast response and was much more helpful. I could see my spelling and grammar mistakes (wordy sentences, passive voice misuse, etc.) much better. Now I have to open the app to see them. It causes a huge waste of time. I hope you will give up this stupid idea as soon as possible. In addition, why Grammarly does not find the Capitalization mistakes?
Edit: We know which letter to click we are not new to this app. We are aware that your goal is to sell the premium subscription. That's why you have removed the features we use from the extension. We are not stupid and do not try to make us fools. I found a better solution. Deleting my Grammarly account and going back to LanguageTool. At least when I type lP (it warns me that it should be LP.)
Developer Response ,
Thanks for leaving us this review, and we're sorry to hear that you are not happy with Grammarly for Safari. Please feel free to contact our support team directly via https://gram.ly/3j7Ylsq with some examples of how we can improve. We're here to listen! Also, our developers have confirmed that the issue you reported is expected behavior. At this time, some advanced alerts, including suggestions to capitalize the first word in a sentence, appear only if you open the sidebar by clicking the G button in the lower right corner of your text field.
Improves my novel writing
Really love this app and its integration within all the software that I use. I dont know how well the engagement and clarity guages make a difference buts its a fun visual aid to see how well you project is going. But I do love its ability to make everything much more clear and accurate. Although it does need some help when it comes to recognizing common phrases we use in our everyday languages. But all in all this app is a mist have for ANYTHING you do that has written words involved with it. Although I do wonder just how much better the premium features are. But do not feel like you need the premium feature to get an excellent value out the free app.
